MissBimbo.com: Virtual scary avatar values

Published by on april 13, 2008

miss-bimbo.jpgThey chocked the world, with values that is beyond common sense.

The world’s first virtual fashion game! Become the most famous and beautiful bimbo in the world. MissBimbo.com

Media has alarm the bad values in the game:

A Web site that encourages girls as young as seven to give virtual dolls breast implants and put them on crash diets has caused concern among parents and children’s activists. Cnn.com

They are now learning the game of common sense. I do think they are doing a lot of thing really wrong, but at the same time its strange that if a game is violent for boys its more ore less normal. Should girls become a saint online to have the right to play a game?

Deepak Chopra in an intellectual musical

Published by on april 12, 2008

Yesterday I did listen for 3 hours on a musical. It was Deepak Chopra, he is talking about higher thinking in an Disneyfied level that it feels more like an intellectual musical. Nothing wrong with that he is successful and he is a great storyteller. When he said:
“The world is YOU” and work with WordPress on his site, then I still like his massage even if it was delivered as an intellectual musical.

Today in Gothenburg, Sweden are the fashion industry seminar Fashion & Retail. This photo have they done to show Al Gore + Stefan Engeseth as ONE at this seminar. It al started last year when I was one of the speakers: H&M design by Al Gore.
This green idea will move forward with the Swedish Trade Federation how is the moving force to make the fashion industry tap into the “slow fashion” movement.

What is Slow Fashion ?

Slow Fashion is to clothing and design what slow food is to cuisine – natural, organic, ethical, local (where possible) and one-off designs with an emphasis on quality, and of course – taste. Slow Fashion means you can look fantastic and feel 100% guilt free.

Silja Line is using BollyBranding to offer a cold Scandinavia the warm feeling of Bollywood to connect to consumers. That is an excellent way of cracked the Swedish-Indian consumer code. Kryssning till HelsingforsBut they could do better in reaching the Indian community in Scandinavia by having the ads in Hindi (and other Indian langue). Also offering al the prices in rupees (Indian money). Now they only reach the Vikings – but that is not so bad.

Cracked Indian consumer code

Published by on april 8, 2008

india_2_0_logo.jpgYesterday was the seminar: Cracking the Indian consumer code hold in Stockholm, Sweden. It was full of great speakers and audience (the moderator was me…). It was like traveling to India for one day. Only that point is a concept to discover (one day trip: Food, people and language can replace the country for one day).
The opening speaker was the Indian Ambassador, Deepa Gopalan Wadhwa how gave us an update in modern India. As one of the excellent speakers, Preeta Signh said it is not possible to talk about al India, you have to choose the part you like to talk about. The same goes for this incredibly day. Another Speaker vice President Christina Baines of Indiska Magazinet told us the story about how to launch in India (going back to their rots). Author and Indian expert Per Johan Andersson painted a picture of India for us to take part in.
The evening did move on to probably the best Indian restaurant in Stockholm: Curry Plaza. Most of the Indian restaurants in Sweden are sadly bad advertising for India. The Japanese are working with the quality of restaurants serving their culture; I hope other countries also protect the quality experience of their culture. If they do so it will be easier to travel to another country for one day.

CIA into web 2.0 with Google vs. 1 April joke

Published by on april 3, 2008

First believed that this was 1 April joke, then I did read this on CIA website (they don’t joke around):

CIA is only one of the many US intelligence, diplomatic, and military organizations that use Intellipedia on top secret, secret, and unclassified networks. CIA.gov

It is a smart move of Google.com to work with trusted brands (land security is as seriously it can be). It put their brand/site Intellipedia strongly exactly at the weakest spot on Wikipedia.org (security, credibility and trust). This smart move will move the Google brand into the government market faster than it takes to find out that this was not a 1 April joke.
